The gite boasts all of its original features including its majestic fireplace and huge oak beams. To complement this we have sympathetically renovated the house and brought it right up to date making it perfect for twenty first century living. In this lovely cottage everything is new from the electrics and plumbing to the leather settees and flat screen television. It is, of course, fully equipped from top to bottom for all your needs and has been fully redecorated and hung with a selection of contemporary art
The setting of the house makes it the perfect holiday spot for those wanting both the idyllic tranquility of rural Brittany together with the option of getting out and about cycling, walking or visiting nearby towns and beaches. The village of Treal with its restaurant, bars, church, village shop (fresh baguettes etc) is just a one minute flat walk from La Maison Bleue
Bleue itself, is the last but one house in the village. The nearest large towns are Ruffiac, Ploermel and mediaeval Malestroit, about ten minutes away.
